JrVEEKLY REVIEW OF
Condition of the Markets as Told In
Pun's Weekly Review of Trade and
Both in business confidence and in
volume of business transactions the
situation continues to improve. The
gain Is very gradual and conservative,
and there is little disposition to go be
yond satisfaction of immediate wants
?but It Is a gain; and the significant
thing Is that this improvement has
now been maintained for several
weeks. The cessation of disturbing
international difficulties, the easier
conditions of the international money
markets, the growing conviction that
domestic economic problems are shap
ing; themselves for the better, and the
pressing need of doing something to
replenish depleted stocks, uii contrib-j
ute to the improvement which is b( -
Purchasing of cotton goods of the
heavier and coarser description for
the manufacturing trades has steadied
prices during the week. Print cloths
are selling more freely and wide cloths
are from 1-lti to 1-8 cent higher. Fall
River sold 200,000 pieces last week
and over 2T>0,000 pieces this week.
Large sales of blue denims have been
made and jobbers report a fair busi
liess on colored domestics. Prints are
being bought steadily, ducks are well
sold up and underwear and hosiery for
fa!l Is firmer. Shipments on old or
ders to China are being made regu
larly, but new business is slow. Mis
cellaneous export trade, however, is
Stendy, and for the year to date ship
Ji!* tits of domestics exceed last year
by over $5,000,000. Dress goods and
men's wear mills are in a better posi
tion as to orders and are cleaning up
stocks very rapidly. The yarn mar
kets are steadier, a fairly broad move
ment of merchandise being shown, and
in the New England wool market
transfers aggregate ;',,000,000 or 4,
Oi 1 000 pounds for the week and pric
es tend higher.
The Cotton Market.
Nothing has occurred to break the
llock in the cotton market, prices
still backing and filling in monoton
Olli fashion. One day quotations move
up a little and then fall back again
Cl iso to the familiar basis of 9cu with
trading on a very meagre scale. A
prise was furnished by the appear
an e of the Census ginning figures on
Tuesday, showing it total 'if some 230,
bales below the popu nr estimate: ,
yet there was only a feeble response
? I lie official statement and the ad
vance was quickly wiped out by ag
gresRlvo selling. The 1 1,2G9,!)8fi bales
g] tied up to November I I are nearly
I," "limit bales above the previous high
r< >rd established In 1904, when the
Cl ip turned out to bo 13,654,000 bales.
Hence, no one questions but that the
[??is nt yield will easily be of unpre
cedented size, although some people
now insist that forecasts of 15,000,
000 bales or over will not be realized.
1: is the price rather than the prob
* able size of the crop, however, that Is
baffling many of the shrewdest mem
bers of the trade, and there is a gen
eral disposition to await some devel
opment that will sway the market defi
nitely in one direction or the other.
